I'm missing herbs and spices and chili the most. I got my kids a pizza the other night and it was really hard to sit there eating my bowl of rice! I was near breaking point after nearly three weeks solid of just rice.
Since I got worse on the basic Lofflex diet, I went to just eating rice for two weeks, then when I was sure my symptoms had subsided, I started following the plan in the book, trying one new food a day, and then if I reacted, going back to the safe foods until the symptoms went away, then continuing with the next food. So far, I can eat rice, carrots, red lentils, tea, bananas and milk. Trying peas today. Foods that I reacted to were potato, soya and pears.
I was surprised that potato affected me so badly, as it seems a quite innocuous food, but I have a friend with arthritis who has a reaction to anything in the nightshade family (potato, tomato, aubergine, peppers). I will be interested to see what happens when I try the other veggies in that family.
